BELIEVE!
The theme for Independence Middle School is the acrostic, BELIEVE.  This welcome sign near the IMS entrance depicts the winning student-drawn posters from past school years.  The sign was created by Boy Scouts Brian and Michael Kelley, sons of School Nurse Lori Kelley, as part of their Eagle Scout Project. Have a great school year and don't forget--BELIEVE!
